A lovely picture of my mother – quite a stunner!

My beautiful girl is growing up fast!

Dusting off WordPress for another round

Forgive me for I have not posted.. etc.etc… I believe I’ll have some time on my hands in the near future with my current contract ending.  As always, I have much to say. My finger is hovering over the ‘Order’ button for a Xoom – from the US of course so I don’t have to […]

September already!

It’s September… Politics – our PM almost got re-elected.. and after much horse trading with a few independents who held the nation to ransom demanding more and more for their tiny electorates.. Julia Gillard once again leads Australia in what seems like an awfully fragile minority government.  Far from the ‘new spirit of cooperation’ independents […]

New PM for Australia

Waking up to a new PM… So yesterday, like everyone else, I found out that the Labor Party power brokers got together and decided it was time for Australia to have a new Prime Minister.

Well… Seratoga.com has been sadly neglected… put simply – toddler, work, house hunting.. and there hasn’t been a lot of time to pretty up my website and fix its somewhat ‘organic’ structure at the moment. The first step was to make using it easier – so I could put up some thoughts quickly and without […]

Farewell to Poppa Ken

On May 11th my dear grandfather – Poppa Ken died. It’s never easy to say goodbye to someone who has always been in your life. With Poppa Ken living in Sale, I didn’t see him nearly as much as I would have liked to and I am sad that he never got to meet his […]

Hot in the city

It has been crazy hot in Melbourne over the past few weeks… I think all the records have been broken and there have been 45 – 47 degree days. When it gets that hot in Melbourne everything falls apart – our public transport, our power supply and subsequently just about everyone’s patience. I stood around […]
